Band Instrument Repair
After training in Machine Tool Technology at Forbes Road CTC, David decided in 1972 to turn to musical instrument repair and restoration as a career. After a two year in-house apprenticeship with Gerrero Music of Wheeling, West Virginia, he became a full-time Band Instrument Repair Technician for Gerrero Music of Steubenville, Ohio in 1974. During the 47 years he has worked here in the Ohio Valley, he has had the opportunity to perform work for over 40 different school districts in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Additionally, he has association with many professional clients in the area, specializing in saxophone repair and restoration. Through the years he has also enjoyed providing repair clinics for local band directors on “in service” days, as well as a mobile repair service at various marching band contests.
David likes to say that music and working with his hands are two things he loves very much. So a career of providing musical instruments that are both musically and mechanically reliable to Ohio Valley students has been a great pleasure for him. We asked him, “What have been some of your greatest repair challenges over your 47 year career?” He remembered the dad who tried to remove a stuck trumpet mouthpiece by tying one end to a tree and the other to his car bumper. You can visualize the result. The alto saxophone that was literally flattened when a school bus ran over it. A trombone slide that had a dollar bill rolled up inside of it (“Why is this thing playing so flat?”). And of course all the things he has discovered lodged inside musical instruments like a golf ball, marbles, lip balm, coins, ink pens, jewelry, pencils, food, candy, mouthpieces, and even homework. He says the question is always the same: “How can something that goes in so easy be so hard to get out?”
Although he has worked by himself for the majority of his profession, David states that one of his greatest pleasures is teaching young students how to care for their musical instruments and get the most from their music education.
